Another Bishop Stang alumnus on the UMass Dartmouth coaching staff, Jon Perry returns for his fourth season with the Corsairs. This year, Perry will coach the cornerbacks.
A wide receiver and defensive back at Stang, Perry coached under both former UMD Assistant Coach Jim Lanagan and current Assistant Coach Tim McCarthy after he graduated.
Perry coached at Stang for 10 years, including eight years as a varsity assistant. In addition, he was the head coach for indoor and outdoor track and field for four years, after serving as an assistant for five seasons. "When I was a student, I knew that I wanted to teach and coach, and Coach McCarthy asked me to come on board," said Perry. "I'm excited to coach at the collegiate level."
Perry currently works in the New Bedford school system and is completing his bachelor's degree in education at UMass Dartmouth.
